To ensure that our
pupils are safe and have positive experiences online, the school would like
to encourage parents to reinforce the following at home with your child:
1. Seek permission before using any computing
devices. This includes downloading any applications on computing devices
(including mobile phone) 2. Exit websites which share inappropriate
information 3. Activate parental controls in all computing
devices 4. Establish ground rules regarding the use of all
computing devices 5. Set a time limit for the use of computing devices 6. Navigate the internet with your child to have a
better understanding of what he/she is doing online.
we cannot fully protect our children from being exposed to viral contents
online, together with the school, parents can play an important role in
teaching them how to be more discerning and minimise the negative effects of
exposure to harmful content.
articles published on Schoolbags.sg encourage parents to have an open
conversation with their children about their struggles, including pointers on
watching out for signs of anxiety and distress, if any.
